Hyundai has introduced the more powerful version of the Eon in the Nepalese market. The India-made Hyundai Eon 1.0-litre is powered by, as its name says, a 1-litre three cylinder Kappa engine that makes a maximum power of 69 PS (68.05 bhp) and 94 Nm of torque. Available only in the Magna+ trim, the Hyundai Eon retails for 1.96 million Nepalese Rupees, an equivalent of INR 12.25 lakhs.

The 1L engined Eon provides higher power & torque, while returning a slightly less mileage compared to the 800 cc variant.

It will be available via Hyundai's authorised distributor in Nepal, Laxmi Intercontinental, alongside the smaller engined (0.8-litre) Eon which has already been in the market from soon after it launched in India. Mated to a five-speed manual transmission, the 1-litre engine is claimed to return close to 20.3 kmpl (in the ARAI mileage test) which means on a full tank of fuel (32-litres), it can be easily used for long journeys.

The Magna+ trim brings a lot of features as well. There's an air conditioner, keyless entry, a 2-DIN audio system complete with Aux and USB compatibility, chrome grille and body coloured body parts. In terms of dimensions, the boot space of 215-litre is more than its closest competitor, the Maruti Alto K10, while there's adequate room for the occupants as well.
